The baby mama of dancehall King Shatta Wale, popularly known as Shatta Michy but with real name Diamond Michelle is reported to have stabbed her husband to be and bolted with their son Majesty and vital documents belonging to the dancehall king.

The report, which was carried by an account named ”those called celeb” on the social networking app Instagram noted that the baby mama of Shatta Wale stabbed him with scissors and other sharp objects and then made away with his vital documents and their son.

The baby mama who became a fiancee after a public marriage proposal was made her by Shatta Wale at the launch of his Reign Album some days ago posted on her Instagram story an advice to women not to refute warnings by their parents when cautioned not to date a hustler with the hope that all shall be well one day.

Michy’s earlier post which ended with location – ”Somewhere” did not first make meaning, but the below post on Instagram seems to be adding up the pieces to the puzzle.

The post which was made with a picture of Shatta Michy and their son Majesty with ”WANTED” boldly written at the top of it reads, ”Let me tag u so dat it enters ur brain @michygh ….how many people will believe dat…de love i have for Michy connected me to @shattawalenima ?? I just love de girl so she is de last person i will do her bad. I refused her husband proposal on many occasions and even refused to meet dis guy in person cux i didn’t wanna go into their relationship n de love i hv for Shatta no…wen we meet today…SEX will come in so i do hide n seek wid him oo 😭…but wat am hearing no de3…i think dis is de right time to take ma man tho cux i can’t see him dead…he gotta get sound mind to do more music for de nation.

The story continues. ………………tomorrow. ..gudnite.”

The lovers some few months ago had a long-standing brawl that led to Shatta Michy leaving their home for a while and returned not long ago. If this new development is something to go by then it simply means the two are back at it again but this time with a different twist.

”I Ended Payola”; Smart Shatta Wale Responds To Social Media Trolls With Tooting Of His Horns.

Published

on

The honcho of the Shatta Movement from last night till this morning has been trolled on social media with an image of a statue, which seem to look like him with captions ”guess who” and ”tag him if you know him.” But his response to all the troll is too smart.

Though the captions that came with the picture of the statue clearly communicate fear from those posting to tag the real owner of the image, Charles Nii Armah has owned up as the one in the picture.

Interestingly, the fury with which the media expected the owner to respond with was rather turned around when Shatta this morning on his Instagram page posted the same image with a caption thanking one DreamLine Aaron Jay, who we think is behind the statue, tooting his horn and accepting he is a ”hero with a big mouth”.

In the post, he mentioned he is the hero who levelled up payments made to artists, he is the hero whose era ended payola and he fought for a better music industry among others.

Below is the full caption posted by Shatta Wale.

”Thank you DreamLine Aaron Jay ..🔥🔥🔥———————————————————-Years to come his name will Go down into history, As hero with a big mouth that saved the music industry of Ghana 🇬🇭 from the hands of Other music markets . A hero who saw artiste being paid huge some of Money bcos he fought for that…

A hero who era end paying of payola cos he proved to ppl one can still push and promote a song without radio/Tv…

Years To come he will b rememberd as the only artiste who went down for Ten year and bounce back to take the number one spot…

Charles Nii Armah most sketch artiste  in the history of ghana music …

He’s so influential that every artisan wants to  try their hands on his image.
